Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-3781) Plugin Installer, CRSF issue when attempting to install a new plugin
Date Tue, 05 Feb 2008 22:25:07 GMT


Joseph Leong commented on GERONIMO-3781:


Been spending a great deal of time on this, have found a funny scenario that fixes this issue
with expiring a cookie and some delays-  but not satisfied with that hack.  Going to put more
work into it until i iron this out solid.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.  The specific issue is at the: private void checkNotCsrfAttack(HttpServletRequest
request, String sessionCookieName) located at,r=1.7/dwr/java/org/directwebremoting/dwrp/

It is throwing a session error because nothing will return true.

Due to GERONIMO-3746 being resolved, this JIRA will remain active to update the CSRF issue.

> Plugin installer will not allow for you to install anymore plugins on a second attempt
given that it threw an exception the first time.  This is attributed to the exception thrown
that doesn't properly exit and close off current sessions.  So in the second attempt there
is a cookie/session mismatch.
